Of course, Maison de la ttortilla is famous with its speciality, 'Tortilla", Spanish omlette with mashed potato. But it is also a Bar serving numerous kinds of tapas. I think it is an enough good place to spend evening time in Madrid.

performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
